ABSTRACT

Background: Spinal collars were brought in 1967 into the administration of spinal injury care as it was believed that this procedure of immobilization would forestall any further neurological or spinal harm in high-risk patients. This study was done to assess the incidence of neurological deficit following road traffic accidents with cervical spine immobilization compared to no cervical spine immobilization in patients visiting Taif hospitals. Methods: A cross-sectional investigation of the patients who have encountered street car crashes was done from the time of July 2018 2022. The information was collected through a survey that assess the presence or non-attendance of neurological shortfalls in patients who had the cervical collar (CC) immobilization applied and the people who had not. Results: A total of 322 patients took part in our poll and cross-sectional review. The highest number of people were who did not utilize the CC when they own up to the emergency department (67.1%); accordingly, that significance (p = 0.009) demonstrated the powerlessness of the CC to diminish the deficiencies. Also, its presence did not diminish the complete number of patients in the Intensive care unit (ICU), however, the opposite occurred (p = 0.005). Conclusion: The utilization of a CC did not resist diminishing either the neurological deficiencies or admission to the ICU where most patients did not admit to the ICU unit which might be on the grounds that the greater part of patients did not confront cervical spine injury.
